LIVE MAP by John Hopkins to track global cases of the Coronavirus COVID-19

Background regarding the origins of the Coronavirus (see below) and Map Link — CLICK HERE to track the current status of the virus…

On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of an outbreak of “pneumonia of unknown cause” detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China – the seventh-largest city in China with 11 million residents. As of January 23, there are over 800 cases of 2019-nCoV confirmed globally, including cases in at least 20 regions in China and nine countries/territories. The first reported infected individuals, some of whom showed symptoms as early as December 8, were discovered to be among stallholders from the Wuhan South China Seafood Market. Subsequently, the wet market was closed on Jan 1. The virus causing the outbreak was quickly determined to be a novel coronavirus. On January 10, gene sequencing further determined it to be the new Wuhan coronavirus, namely 2019-nCoV, a betacoronavirus, related to the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome virus (MERS-CoV) and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome virus (SARSCoV). However, the mortality and transmissibility of 2019-nCoV are still unknown, and likely to vary from those of the prior referenced coronaviruses.

Newsprompt Brings You Top Stories From Around The World

Newsprompt is a news aggregation service that I happened across that I think is a keeper. I could not find much information on this service, but you can either go directly to the site or you can set it up through the Google Chrome store as a “new tab” browser extension. In my case I saved the site as a bookmark. There appears to be no sign-in required; however, you can customize what news you would like to see. I am assuming the customization settings are maintained through your browser settings (i.e. cookies). Anyhow, good option for getting the news…

Newsprompt brings to you top stories from around the world and personalized recommendations just for you right in your new tab. Newsprompt delivers highly personalized content without you having to change any settings or customization. From the sports team you follow or the celebrity you love or the company that interests you, get the latest updates for all the stuff that you care about.

Use “Trace” To Remove The Background From Photos

Upload a photo to “Trace” and watch the magic happen. “Trace” will remove everything in a photo, except the main object. For example, photo one below is a photo with background that shows a skunk. After uploading to “Trace”, the skunk is now a skunk (with a transparent background) that can be singly used for other graphic creations. Here at “What’s On My PC” I have put “Trace” through its’ paces and it is awesome. The key is to use photos where there is a main object in the photo. I have had fun with “Trace” where I use “Google Drawings” as my graphic editor to merge my creations.

Locast.org – Provides Local Broadcast Signals Over The Internet In Select Cities

Today in my email I received the below information in regards to an online TV Service, called “locast“. Here at “What’s On My PC” I am familiar with “locast” and thought I would share this information with my readers as another FREE online TV provider option. You can watch “locast” channels online or through various app platforms (such as Android and Apple). I have found it to be a good option; but, there are “locast” interruptions (for donations) and you can make the interruptions go away via a monthly donation commitment.

Locast is a public service to Americans, providing local broadcast signals over the Internet in select cities. All you have to do is sign up online, provide your name and email address, and certify that you live in, and are logging on from, one of the select US cities (“Designated Market Area”). Then, you can select among local broadcasters and stream your favorite local station.

Locast.org is a “digital translator,” meaning that Locast.org operates just like a traditional broadcast translator service, except instead of using an over-the-air signal to boost a broadcaster’s reach, we stream the signal over the Internet to consumers located within select US cities.

A Very Nice Hidden Speed Dial Application To Launch Your Favorite Bookmarks

I not sure how I even happened onto this, but if you go to “www.topsites.me” you can sign up for FREE  (very nice) speed dial utility that will allow you to add your favorite bookmarks. Below is the speed dial I created with various categories, as a sample.

Screenshot

After finding this hidden speed dial (not really promoted anywhere), I did some further research. This speed dial utility is managed by Nimbus Web Inc. who are the developers of Nimbus Note, Nimbus Clipper, and Nimbus Capture. They also are the developers of a very popular speed dial utility, similar to what I found, but is actually a browser extension called FVD Speed Dial. After digging further, Nimbus also has a sync utility that sync’s the speed dial (called Eversync Everhelper) that if installed allows you to manage your speed dial pages and back them up. I also found that the same sync utility works with the browser extension (FVD Speed Dial) as well, which leads me to believe (have not tested) that I could sync the speed dial I created to the one associated with the browser extension. Now that this is all clear as mud, I have been experimenting with the speed dial I created at “www.topsites.me” and have found it so far, after about a month’s usage to be very reliable.  I also installed the Everysync Everhelper client that allows me to manage the tiles and perform backups. Also, you can add your own background images to the speed dial and in my case, I am using a Weather Channel static map image that routinely changes with updated weather.

The Best FREE Note Keeping App Out There…

For simple note keeping, I suggest you take a look at “Simplenote“… I have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled this application so many times that I cannot keep count; BUT, here I am back to it again. In reality, if you are tired of all the bells and whistles and want something that is “simple” (as the name implies) and is dog fast in terms of load time and searches, this is the note-keeping application to go with. It is a text-based application; but, you can use (learn) the very simple markdown language to make elements of a note standout. Simplenote has been around for years and is now being developed by “Automattic”, the developers of WordPress…

Simplenote is a cross-platform application that is available on iOS, Android, macOS, Windows,  Linux and on the WEB…
